Get to Know our Staff: Brittainy Mays, Pharmacy

What is your role at Scottish Rite for Children? 
I work as a pharmacy technicianIn the Pharmacy department, we work together to prepare and dispense all the necessary medications, for both inpatients and outpatients. More specifically, I am responsible for making sure all the OC cabinets (medication storage units) throughout the organization are fully stocked, in date and functioning properly for our nurses and surgical staff. I also oversee the crash carts, anesthesia trays and hypothermia boxes. 

What do you enjoy most about Scottish Rite?
Definitely the culture! I love the warm and friendly atmosphere. It is great to be part of a group who truly cares about our patients and are willing to go above and beyond for our families. As an employee, it means a lot to know that we are truly valued and supported. All of this is why Scottish Rite is the best! 

What was your first job? How long have you worked here? 
My first job was at Greenberg’s Pharmacy in Villanova Plaza. That was where I first took an interest in doing this as my career. This is only my second pharmacy job and I have been here seven years, with a total of 14 years doing pharmacy type work. 

What’s the coolest or most interesting thing you’re working on right now?
In the Pharmacy, we recently started making EXPAREL IV bags. I think it is interesting because it’s one of the only compounds we make involving more than one drug. The really cool and beneficial part is that it takes away the need for an epidural. It’s injected at the closing of the surgical procedure and literally replaces the need for an epidural post-op to manage pain after surgery. 

What are you currently watching on Netflix/Hulu/TV/etc.? 
I wish I had time to watch a series, but my 6-year-old currently watches Dora and the Lost City of Gold on repeat!

What would be the most amazing adventure to go on?
Exploring in the Amazon for lost cities?! I think I’ve watched Dora one too many times!

What are some small things that make your day better?
Prayer. Prayer makes everything better. My daughters’ bright smiles when I get home doesn’t hurt either.

What is special about the place you grew up?
That’s actually a very funny question because I literally live right down the street from the house I grew up in, so I still get to see it multiple times a day. 

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not working? 
I love to get together with my extended family for dominoes, brunch or any other reason.
